Are Our Plates Legal?
When you choose us to make your plates, you can be certain that we will create them following DVLA regulations if you select the legal plate option when designing online. Please remember that you need to ensure you are designing a motorbike plate, not a car plate as we want you to get what you need the first time, every time.
How Big Should My Number Plate Be?
Motorbike number plates can vary in size as long as you stick to the character sizing and spacing guidelines. The typical size of a motorbike number plate is 229 mm x 178 mm. Get in touch if you want a different size to this as we would be happy to assist.
How to Fix Your New Plates to Your Bike?
When your new plates arrive, all you need to do is attach the sticky pads included in our fitting pack and stick on to your bike. If you prefer to screw your plates in, we also offer a fitting pack for this too. Take a look at our videos to see plates being fitted and get advice on how to fit yours properly.
